Short video clips of Siggraph97, including part of a presentation by Douglas Adams regarding Starship Titanic video game creative process. Quality of this handheld video capture is poor. And the audio seems delayed although that is how we experienced it at the presentation. And I ran out of batteries before he even GOT to titanic, he'd only touched on Infocom by then... (cough, awkward pause). I'm not actively encouraging anyone to watch this video ("oh you gotta see this") but I found the tape, I loved Adam's work, and if someone's looking for Douglas Adams footage pertaining to Storytelling/Infocom, I ain't gonna deny them.
